If you have bought a separate ticket in order to visit the Winter Palace of Peter the Great, then you might come out with an unsatisfied feeling.

As it is small, there is not so much to see.

I believe my museum round trip lasted less then 10 minutes . . .

There is the Courtyard of the Winter Palace, a throne hall with Peter the Great made of wax, and 3 small rooms, like the study, the dining room and the turnery.

Unique Suggestions: As I had a combined ticket (4 museums: Hermitage, Winter Palace, General Staff building and Menshikov Palace), it did not give me a real bad feeling.

Also I had just walked a big (very big) tour in the Hermitage, so it was good that this was a very small museum.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
